As I work with the Oracle Business Intelligence Applications (OBIA) repository in ODI studio I have recently noticed I am no longer able to right click on objects. I have found two solutions, the first one is a work-around:
Let’s assume you want to right click on a particular folder or scenario, you notice as you do so the context menu does not come up, go ahead and do the following:
- Select the object with a left click
- Move your mouse pointer outside the object’s boundary, I prefer a little bit to the right
- Right click, the context menu should come up now
This work around works if you are restricted on changing your installation’s settings or using a hosted platform such as Citrix
In cases where you have access to install software your system then you should look into the compatibility matrix for ODI Studio and the version of Java you are working with. In my case I noticed the hosting provider for my environment has setup JDK 1.7 64-bit, I noticed for some versions of ODI JDK 1.6 was required so I downloaded both 32 and 64 bit versions and pointed my odi.conf file to them version. The 64 bit version did solve my issue, which is great since I can allocate more memory to the client under this bit version.
